Two Beautiful layouts from Nicole

Hello!  It's Nicole with you today to share two more projects
using the bloomingly beautiful Scraps of Elegance April kit, 'A Song of Spring', along with the Elements and Floral add-ons.

Speaking of Spring, today's share pays homage to this fabulous season.


 I think pretty much every normal person loves Spring
just simply for the fact that it is so refreshing and rejuvenating to see the trees starting to leaf and flowers to bloom FINALLY
after an always too long Winter, especially here in Canada.
I don't have much of a green thumb so obviously I don't garden much, but when we bought our house 5 years ago, we were blessed
to also get a very nice flower bed in front of it full of perennials including gorgeous tulips that bloom every Spring without me having to lift a finger.

The picture used on my page is not of my tulips however as they are not quite fully bloomed yet (I told you... long Canadian Winter!). 
It is a Desktop Wallpaper image that I found online right HERE


I had a lot of fun with the 49 and Market 'Wings & Things' layered embellishment set included in the Elements Add-On.  The beautiful floral wreath, branches and little hummingbirds were the perfect decorations for my page combined with a pretty pink flower flair from ScrapBerry's.
  

You can see here glimpses of some gorgeous 49 and Market patterned paper. I added a few Sweet Lilac Crystal Drops from the main kit for some added color and texture


All together, it makes for a very flowery layout!



I am hoping to inspire that creativity today by sharing with you
my next layout featuring the Scraps of Elegance 'A Song of Spring' April kit.


I was inspired by the May challenge from Scrap the Girls which is dedicated to mothers. 

I decided to scrap a lovely photo of my mother and her granddaughters. Not having had any kids myself, I am so happy that my mother has been blessed with 2 amazing granddaughters and is able to enjoy being a grandmother via my brother and his wife's little family.  It warms my heart to see them having fun together!
As you probably know by now, the Scraps of Elegance April kit
features stunning papers from both Blue Fern Studios and 49 and Market.  The background of this layout is from the gorgeous 49 and Market 'Scents of Nature' collection.  Look at that gorgeous artwork!  
 

And of course, I added lots of pretty 49 and Market flowers to my page including some pretty pieces from the 'Wings & Things' layered embellishment set. To make them match my colour palette, I covered the blue flowers with pink Copic markers to made them purple.  Others beautiful flowers are from Prima.


Here's another detailed look at the stunning design on this paper.
You can also see that I slipped behind my photo a few of the Ephemera Die Cuts from Ultimate Crafts that is found in the Elements Add-On.


A close-up of my nieces with their Mémère... what a delightful trio!


I hope you've enjoyed looking at these layouts!
